Oregon NFTC: Top Defensive Performers

Here's our look at the top five overall performers on the defensive side of the ball at the Oregon NFTC...

DE Cody Baker, Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic
Baker was also in the mix for MVP honors, showing real well in the positional drills and then doing well in the 1on1s. He's got Mountain West offers but should land more when it's all said and done.

LB Christian Folau, Salt Lake City (Utah) East
Folau is one of the premier middle linebackers in the West and the Stanford commit was probably the top overall defensive performer on the day. The four-star showed great polish and movement in the drills, moved well in space and was tough for the running backs to stop in the pass rushing drills. He also did really well in the 1-on-1's and showed the agility that's made him a top 10 middle backer nationally.

CB A.J. Greeley, Fresno (Calif.) Edison
Greeley, a Fresno State pledge, showed the best footwork, backpedal and closing speed of any of the DBs, was physical and heady in his play, and next to impossible to get a pass caught on.

S Evan Tyler, Corona (Calif.) Roosevelt
Just a few days after committing to San Jose State, Tyler was in action in Eugene and had a good showing in the positional drills and in the half-skelly. Tyler is a big kid but moved really well with good closing speed and quick hands to knock the ball away.

CB Terin Adams, Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic
Adams had some nice moments in the 7on7 portion of the afternoon and has a smooth backpedal, he just needs to add a little more weight.

NOTE- Our list is based on who we felt had the best day and is not based on college recruiting potential. This list is also just for players in the rising 2015 class as we'll have a separate list for underclassmen later in the week.
